How to setup media configuration in WordPress

WordPress is very flexible content management system. You can setup media configuration in WordPress. After you upload an image, WordPress converts it to different sizes for different purposes. By default, 3 image sizes are provided (besides original image):

  • Thumbnail size: 150 x 150
  • Medium size: 300 x 300
  • Large size: 1024 x 1024

What if you need thumbnails of another dimension? Or the medium image with 400 x 400 px dimension?

You can change the media configuration to achieve such dimension of images. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to setup media configuration in WordPress.
